Search Tips

To get more results, broaden your search.

  • Use fewer search terms. Look for words not unique to your topic that you could cut from your search string.
  • OR Use OR to link synonyms, so you get articles where the authors used other terms to describe the same concept. 
    • (play OR leisure OR recreation)
  • Use an asterisk to find articles using any of the variants of the same root word.
    • elder* = elder, elders, elderly
  • Use more inclusive search terms.
    • Bigger locations - too few results from california, try ("united states" OR america*)
    • More general terms - too few results from quilting, try craft*

To get fewer results, narrow your search.

  • " " Use quotation marks to find exact phrases, when you need words next to each other in precise sequence to have the meaning you intend.
    • "senior citizens"
  • Add more concepts to your search. Consider the who, what, when, where, why, and how.
